Usain Bolt once again defeated rival Justin Gatlin on Thursday to win his fourth consecutive 200-metre world title and complete another sprint double at the world track and field championships in Beijing.
The American came into the 200 final with three of the year’s four best times, but Bolt bettered them all, running 19.55 seconds. That’s the Jamaican’s best time since 2012, even though he slowed down and showboated once victory was assured.
Seven years ago, Bolt started his amazing run of gold at the Beijing Olympics and has not lost a major 200 race since. The Jamaican, however, had been struggling with injury since winning his third straight 200 title at the 2013 world championships in Moscow.
